Life Skills-Based Education (LSBE)
Life Skills-Based Education (LSBE) is being adopted as a means to empower young people in challenging situations. LSBE refers to an interactive process of teaching and learning which enables learners to acquire knowledge and to develop attitudes and skills which support the adoption of healthy behaviours.
How does life skills-based education (LSBE) leads to goal of quality education?
LSBE strengthens educational processes by insisting on participatory and gender-sensitive teaching and learning methods. Participatory methods allow all participants (including the facilitator) equal opportunities to listen to, and learn from, each other and can appeal to different learning styles. They include self-guided and experiential learning (learning by doing), and are based on the natural processes by which children acquire knowledge, attitudes, skills and ultimately behaviours.
Where implemented with high quality, life-skills based education can result in quality learners achieving quality educational outcomes. LSBE can also contribute to a safe, inclusive child-friendly learning environment, for example, by counteracting the gender discrimination so often inherent in education systems (though a range of supportive strategies will be required to achieve this fully).
